Frugal Friday ***

So we finally got around to buying the air cooler we wanted! We had gone to Giant to purchase a new alarm clock for sleepyhead B and did not know new stock of the air cooler had arrived. There were two stacks of the model we wanted, which was a pleasant surprise. After shopping around for batteries and what not, we happily brought home one new lime green alarm clock for B and one new air cooler for our home!

I think it's the perfect buy for us especially during this heat wave. Not only is it cheaper than installing an expensive air-conditioner inside the living-room but the air cooler also works just as well! Thanks to the new air cooler, our living room now exudes a relaxing breezy ambience. Fitted with wheels, the air cooler can be easily moved around the house, which is an added bonus for ease of use. tepuktangan

It was good that we waited for the new stock to arrive since this batch of air coolers came with a discount of RM40! Nowadays, everything is so pricey so the discount was much welcomed. Everybody needs to be a little prudent in their shopping and we're not excluded. We're trying our best to cut back on dining outside, which has seen me frequenting and slaving in the kitchen more. Believe me, eating out every day does take its toll on you so it's time to cut back on the luxuries and make do with
the simpler things in life.

Okay speaking of saving and being thrifty and all that jazz, it's time for me to end this post so I can get started on dinner. Have a good weekend and don't spend too much now! takbole

Shemah,  July 24, 2009 8:55 PM

actually the lens are what makes it so expensive.. our photog friend just

Monica,  July 24, 2009 9:51 PM

yeah Shemah the lens are what makes it so expensive!!

Shemah,  July 24, 2009 10:04 PM

oh no monica!! he's not a pro or anything.. he just uses an eos 450D.. eos
50D is a professional camera, right? is that what R is getting?

Shemah,  July 24, 2009 10:05 PM

crazyyy kan the lens?? might as well we go shopping with that money, mon!!

Monica,  July 24, 2009 10:10 PM

they said eos 50D is a feature-packed semi-pro DSLR... aiya R lagi not pro
lah Shemah! LOL!

Monica,  July 24, 2009 10:11 PM

hahhahaha that's why lah! with that money we can buy lots of things! :-D

Shemah,  July 24, 2009 10:20 PM

semi pro?? i know alot of people who are into photography changed from their
previous DSLR to EOS 50D lah.. but i'm sure the sales people know better.. i
guess anyone can learn all about those aperture, iso, shutter speed and all
that kan?

Monica,  July 24, 2009 10:27 PM

yeah according to the sales people anyone can learn all that! anyway i'd
like to see those pics taken by yr brother! ;)

Mariuca,  July 24, 2009 10:30 PM

I need to buy new thin clothes if ya know what I mean, Shemah! ;)

Mariuca,  July 24, 2009 10:31 PM

Wow 15k on lens!

Shemah,  July 24, 2009 10:37 PM

yeahhh.. anyone can learn and if you have a natural eye for photography..
then it'll be easy i guess.. my bro and syura were the one that got my dad's
talent for photography. i am hopeless with cameras. i took a couple of pics
using my bro's camera.. but i suck at taking photos.. but here's a couple.
later i take some of my bro's photos from his facebook and post it up ya?
but for the meantime.. these 2 pics i took with his cam.

Shemah,  July 24, 2009 10:40 PM

hahahahaha i know what you mean, marzie! that's why i tak syok now want to
shop.. more like shop for F clothes!! Me no likeyyyyyy!!

Mariuca,  July 24, 2009 10:40 PM

Mariuca,  July 24, 2009 10:43 PM
